Day 1: Tour

This year we'd a much better bus and we left from college as usual by indian standard time aka being late. We had our group comprising of myself(MaCkeR), Aniket(aNIX), Ranjan(ChotaDON), Mandar(maDDy), Mama(sometimes called Ankur, thats his real name), Dipesh(Diprya). The journey was awesome and its great that I do not suffer from *travel* phobia.

We reached STPI[Software Technology Parks of India] which is situated at Hinjewadi near Pune City. That was the industry we were to visit. It is the place were "internet comes from" as described by the person giving us talk that day. We got to learn a lot on how the web works.

Then we went to a hotel which was situated near Sinhagad fort. It served us with good food. We were really hungry by that time.
It was then time to trek our way to Sinhagad fort. It was great, although we went in jeeps which people can hire to go to top. I went for first time their and next time I plan a visit their, I prefer to walk up the fort. It would be a really great adventure. Got some great photos up their. Will upload them soon on my album.

We then made our way to our hotel which was back at Lonavala. Hotel was pretty *bad*, it was under maintenance. To add fuel to fire, even food was worst. Sh*t off to tour manager.

But, we managed to sleep irrespective to menace outside our room caused by some.
